2011 Jeep Wrangler popping gears!

2011 Jeep Wrangler 1k miles

Ok search first 15 pages didn't see anything one this subject...

I understand and read that Jeep knows about this problem and is known in 2010's....

If i am correct..If it's only first gear that pops out it is in need of a part!

If it happens in some gears it can be the rubber boot!

Well it seems to be happening in a few gears and pops in neutral...

any input or direct me to appropriate post!

thanks

This thread has allot of info > http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/m...t-gear-820803/
My 08 did it in second gear a few times when it was new. After practicing firm positive shifts it stopped happening and hasn't been a problem for 17k miles.
Good luck

Really no solution to the problem reported in that thread. Dealer couldn't reproduce and told my wife to bring it back when its colder. Now. I been dealing with dealers for manyyears and can almost guarantee they probably driven it for 10 minutes. Any other threads or loan fixes or is everyone driving around holding stick in place andadapting to jeep manual driving techniques

Any open NHTSA COMPLAINTS open

This bugged me for a while...I haven't taken it apart yet and my x-ray vision is tired and it won't penetrate the rubber boot, but i feel that the shifter hits something hard that limits its travel firmly, before the end of travel of the 'box link. Is the re a H or HH gate down there? Makes me think that a slight variance in the floor panel position with respect to the gearbox may create a stop for the shifter preventing full travel of the gearbox lever, at the other end, either into 1-3-5 or into 2-4-6 depending how things fall in place.
Then, you take it to the dealer, they change parts in the gear box that's nothing wrong with, put it back together and soon you're back for more. Picture that!

My '08 used to pop out of 1st all the time. The dealer ended up ordering some parts from Germany (?) and that pretty much fixed it. I traded it in shortly there after though.

Mine is a 2010 with 6k miles, been popping out of first since new. I went to dealer and had shift boot replaced with no change. I took it in this morning and the dealer is ordering parts, going to replace 1st gear and 1/2 syncros per the TSB. They did not give me any trouble about not being able to reproduce the problem. It sounds like a new TSB is out that gets them right to the problem, good news for us Jeepers.

IIRC the 6 speed is a Mercedes sourced trans.

It is kind of, it is a Getrag trans. Getrag is a German trans manufacturer making trans for Mercedes, BMW, MINI, Jeep and others.

GETRAG Corporate Group - 6MTI300 TRANSMISSION
Not "kind of" at all.

Getrag - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It is however a German transmission company, along with ZF.

The time of mfg's making much of anything on there vehicles is quickly disappearing. Especially transmissions with Borg Warner, Zf, Getrag ect... supplying much of the car industry now.

I was only using the "kind of" to say that it is used in a Mercedes but not made by Mercedes.

Ahh, ok. I thought I had read that it was a Merc. trans that they were using in another vehicle and began using it in the Wrangler to replace the old 5 speed.

so I am on day 9 waiting for dealer to fix first gear. I was working today so my wife called to ask whats up, they said they got first gear in today and that a check engine light came on and they had to order an 02 sensor to install Thursday. Why would they have to replace an 02 sensor on a jeep with 6000 miles on it. WTF? I assume that they hit one with a tool or with the trans when pulling trans. Any ideas?

NEUTRAL? wow..... O2 sensor, they broke it removing x mission of course, I've done that....it's a medium duty truck tranny somehat modified (w/ ratios, tail, etc.,) to fit the JK, "usually" it's the boot that couses the probs but, a known and common TSB exists if it's "other than 1st gear" pop out...
